GPR Used to Locate Post Tension Cable in Phoenix, AZ

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of Arizona was contacted by a general contractor to locate all post tension cables within the concrete slab for an extensive tenant improvement renovation project in Phoenix, AZ.

The general contractor was responsible for expanding certain rooms and installing new sewer drain lines. Knowing that the floor contained post tension cable reinforcements, it was necessary to call upon Ground Penetrating Radar Systems to safely locate all post tension cables so that they would know where they could safely cut into the slab without causing costly or dangerous damage from cutting post tension cables or conduit.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. is very familiar with high volume and urgent projects like this. GPRS was able to scan all flooring locations and accurately map the locations of all post tension cables with results delivered in real time. These results provided the general contractor to know exactly where to cut to complete their project with ease, safety, and the assurance of avoiding costly repairs or risk of danger.

Ground Penetrating Radar mapping is a great tool to scan areas of post tension cables, rebar, and conduits, including PVC pipes. Ground penetrating radar can also be used to locate underground utilities such as water, gas, electrical, communication, sewer, and other objects prior to digging or excavating. GPRS provides real-time results, with markings directly on site as well as wide options for documented reporting.
